Andrew Warden was born in Middlesex, England in 1949. Encouraged by his mother, he developed a talent for drawing at an early age and continued through primary school. After completing his education, he branched off on his own to study art and illustration. He was soon supporting himself as an illustrator, creating works of art for magazines, record covers, and advertisements. Striving to perfect his craftsmanship, he found that his base of collectors was beginning to grow, clamoring to purchase one of his works. He set up his studio in the countryside where he is close to the subjects he likes to paint.READ MORE +
His detailed observation of cottages in the nearby villages, animal life, and the streams and pastures around him has made him renowned throughout Europe. He delights in the changing seasons that bathe his countryside in a myriad of different colorings. He observes his subjects at all times of the day to capture them in the soft light of dawn or the misty glow of evening.
There is an inner peace in his work that can be felt by even the most casual observer. Warden found that he achieved his own inner peace himself when he moved from the city to live in the country. He finds contentment every day in the simplicity of life in the countryside.
